A Message from the Chaplain


Thank-you for the part you’ve played

Whoa! And just like that another term is done.

There have been so many opportunities to celebrate student achievement, growth and community development this term it’s hard to keep up. In addition to the learning and collaboration inside classrooms right across the school, every lesson every day, there have been lots of special events this term. From House Performing Arts Festivals to Father’s Day Breakfasts. From the Driver Education Program to Wellbeing Days. From Year 12 Pyjama Day to Junior School Footy Day. From a Day at the Zoo to our Preps meeting local shopkeepers at McAdam Square. We’ve met for Parent-Teacher Interviews, participated in the Anglican Schools Service at St Paul’s Cathedral, celebrated the National History Challenge and squeezed in a number of Community Links fundraising activities too.

Add in Year Level Chapel Services, Cross-Age Buddy activities, ELC visits to the Senior School Physics lab, Parent Information Nights, Arts Week, Science Week, Health and PE Week, Languages Week, another major Building project and the extraordinary performances of Singin’ In The Rain is it any wonder we’re looking forward to a break to catch our breath!

Well done! As you reflect on all the events and interactions of this term I trust you feel a sense of accomplishment and achievement. Our school is a vibrant and busy place where learning and opportunities are part of everyday – in the special events and the daily interactions. Thank-you for the part you play.

In a letter to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul observes that a community is like the human body. All parts of the body are important and they all have a part to play for overall health and wellbeing. While Paul’s writing is recorded in the Bible, from thousands of years ago, the analogy still resonates today. Our school community is healthier because of your involvement in it. Whether as a student, a teacher, a volunteer, a member of the audience or someone who helps us safely cross the road, we are better because of you. Thank-you.

May you be refreshed and restored during the School Holiday period.

Blessings.
